It’ll be easier than ever to pretend that Chloe Sevigny is your real life BFF with her new 'zine, “No Time For Love.” A collection of photos of the men in her life, “No Time For Love” features Polaroids and photo booth snapshots (and lots of stickers, to protect the boys’ anonymity, and because stickers are great). “We wanted it to be more like me in my real life, who I really am… we wanted it to be something more real,” Sevigny said of the book in an interview with Style.
